I cracked the screen on my g pro so I ordered a new screen kit. while attempting to replace it I ripped the coaxial cable from the tiny metal thing it was inside of.... can that coaxial cable be ordered somewhere? should I just sell the phone and screen replacement for parts? any advice would be appreciated. I don't actually need the phone anymore, I ordered an LG Flex.. so what should I do with the G pro?

I'm gonna assume you mean you damaged the ribbon cable on the new screen replacement? If that's so then it's up to you. If you no longer really need the phone then you could just sell it for parts. But it would be worth more if you fix it. If all you damaged was the ribbon cable on the new screen then just buy another one. Or if it's not bad you could try to just adhere the cable back to the screen and continue the repair and see if it works. If what you're saying is you ripped the cable from the connector COMPLETELY then yeah. You're gonna need to buy another replacement screen.

Sorry if I'm making you more confused. I'm just trying to picture exactly what you did. If you could post a pic that would be good.

If you are referring to this little wire.
[See attached photo] Then yes you can order it. On Amazon or eBay. They run about 5 bucks.
